 IBM Mainframe COBOL - getting JOBNAME, STEPNAME, TCB, PROGRAM-NAME, Job Number, etc

This question comes up medium often, of HOW to get at the various "bits and
pieces" of information in the MVS (OS/390) control blocks - in VS COBOL II
or later versions of IBM mainframe COBOL.

Gilbert Saint-flour has kindly provided sample code to do this - in the NG -
on several occasions.  However, he has now put it out on his web-page.  I
plan to add a reference to this in the FAQ (in the near future) - but also
figured it would be "nice" if this could be found in Deja.COM - sooner
rather than later.  Therefore,  please see


for the appropriate sample source code.
